Recipe: Tuna Salad – Mother’s Day Salad Trio

This is part three of the salad trio, and Mother’s Day is really close by. My mom used to take me to lunch when I was young, She made me feel special because we would order this delicious triple salad every time. This will always remind me of her.

Tuna Salad –
Mother’s Day Salad Trio

¾ cup of mayonnaise plus extra
if needed
2 tsp. garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cans albacore tuna (in water), drained and flaked
¼ cup pickle relish
½ cup grated carrots
½ cup chopped celery
1 apple chopped
½ diced red onion

If you have, by chance, a jar of yellow or any chili pepper assortment, use about 2 tablespoons of the juice only. Mix it in with the flaked tuna first.

Garnish using a head of red or green leaf lettuce, romaine, or butter leaf lettuce; cherry tomatoes or whole tomatoes quartered, carrot strips, cucumber slices, and an assortment of different types of olives and pickle spears. You can basically use what ever you like to make it look pretty. Toss all Tuna Salad ingredients together with the mayonnaise. Chill for about an hour so all the flavors can meld.

To put together:
On a pretty serving dish lay your lettuce leaves, place a scoop of Chicken Salad, a scoop of Egg Salad then a scoop of Tuna Salad. Now here’s the fun: garnish your salad with items from the garnish list and have a nice plate of different breads or crackers. Whichever way you choose, it will be beautiful and mom will be so surprised! (You will never forget it) Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful mother’s of the world.
